Much like all important steps in life, the first step is simply having a willingness to start. Sometimes this can be the most difficult step due to feelings of fear and anxiety for the unknown. Many times we can make excuses that seem to block our way when in reality they could be overcome easily.
Our minds can fill with questions that can degrade our motivation, "what if I fail?" "What if I can't complete a workout?" "What if people stare at me?" When we focus on negative outcome questions, many times we are looking through other people's eyes and projecting our fear and anxieties into our perspective of what others might think.
The truth is, it doesn't matter what other people think. You are on your own journey, you are walking your own path, and you are in control of making your own choices.
Taking the first step is simple but can have a lot of meaning behind it. Taking the first step is a commitment to bettering yourself, for yourself first and foremost. It means making a life change which can be scary or seem more difficult than it actually is.
